DJ Khaled Announces Inaugural We The Best Foundation Golf Classic

DJ Khaled is ready to tee up for charity with his inaugural We The Best Foundation Golf Classic.

The celebrity golf match will be held at the Miami Beach Golf Club on July 20 with proceeds benefiting the We the Best Foundation and its various endeavors in education, the arts and more.

“Just to be out on the golf course with close friends and family of mine is a blessing. Giving back makes it even better. I can’t wait to see you all at the first-ever WE THE BEST FOUNDATION GOLF CLASSIC. We’re starting something very special here while introducing the sport of golf to a wider community.”

In a recent interview with Golf Digest, he explained how golf has taught him life lessons.

“[My] neighbors always invited me to play, and I never had time," he said. "Well, I realized I had time. I just didn’t make time. That’s what golf is teaching me. Life is now. We gotta stop saying we don’t have time for things. We have to make time,” he said. “God said, ‘I’m gonna stop everything; everybody get focused and recharged.’ God put me on that golf course. I went and played with my neighbors and some friends. It was so beautiful. We had so much fun, and for not playing in such a long time, my swing was there; I was hitting them. God was telling me, ‘Yo, Khal, watch what we gonna do now. We’re gonna get you more focused.’ Golf taught me to be more calm — not changing who I am because I have a lot of energy but the way I deal with things. Take time. Don’t trip. Don’t work off your emotions. Something that used to irritate you, brush it off, keep it moving. Go hit another nine holes.”

Khaled will kick things off the evening of Wednesday, July 19, with a VIP reception with sponsors and special guests. Registration and breakfast will commence at 8 a.m. the following morning, with celebrity introductions at 9 a.m. The golf tournament will officially start at 9:30 a.m., and will be followed up by an awards reception at 2:30 p.m.

Khaled also recently sat down with LL COOO J, Greg Nice, and DJ Z-Trip for a special episode of Salute The Sample to talk about Miami Hip-Hop and more.
